I don't want to unlock the bootloader,only want to root.
Actually i want to restore app data from other device that was rooted,i tried Helium Carbon app,but can't restore it on unrooted device because its file were from rooted device.
Or is there any app that can backup app's data without root ?
Not possible with Jellybean 4.3, I'm afraid
Hi, Ben Ling...
There used to be a way of rooting the Nexus 7 whilst running Jellybean 4.2.2, without unlocking the bootloader... called the motochopper 'exploit'
. But sadly, that method now no longer works under Jellybean 4.3... something to do with the security enhancements of JB 4.3.
I know of no method of rooting the Nexus 7 (whilst running Jellybean 4.3), without unlocking the bootloader first... as rooting typically involves fastboot flashing
a Custom Recovery (CWM or TWRP) first... and you can't run fastboot commands with a locked bootloader (other than fastboot oem unlock
The app I use for backing up apps and user data is Titanium...which you're probably already aware of... and of course, it requires root
. Although I've never tried other backup apps, I suspect that root is going to a be necessary prerequisite if you want to backup and restore apps and their associated data.
Sorry I couldn't suggest anything helpful.
